It's a Coffee Talk Tuesday with no question, just a picture and a situation area Mountain Bikers are in
The Dirty Bismark, one of the few large trails currently opened near Boulder, is seeing most of the area's dirt lovers coming out in numbers that seem far greater than usual. Add on top of that the ground is already pretty saturated with water and recent rains and snows have turned some areas, that under our normal desert like conditions, into sections like shown above, and now may need some type of trail structures to fix the problem. Everyone knows to ride through it, it's been a mainstream plea for over 20 years but many don't. Not in any pictures shown but up on the top side of the Dirty Bismark where it connects with the Koopenberg single track has become double track. It's subjective but I would guess it was not mud related but the single track became too bumpy for trail users so a smoother line was created, and given the softness of the ground and shear numbers of riders on the trail made the creation quick and simple. Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance have been working with the community on Trail Etiquette but what can be done with usage rises and Mother Nature screws with you on unseasonable weather.
This Thursday at Rocky Mounts is Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance's Membership Party at 6pm
